Abstract

Mixed method studies have an increasing research paradigm considered as a separate category for the classification of research methods. In addition, it is pointed out that there are various problems with the application and understanding of mixed method studies reported in related literature. Since the field of educational technologies is considered to be interdisciplinary, this field inherently provides mixed method research with a large framework. The present study aimed at sharing mixed design experiences gained based on a study designed with the mixed research method in the field of educational technologies. The study was designed as questions related to the mixed method and responses given to these questions within the scope of a doctorate thesis conducted in the field of educational technologies. In the study, the mixed method of research was examined based on the research mentioned, and the purposes of use of this method were explained. In addition, the study also focused on the foundations, classifications, phases and application of the mixed method research. In the study, the contributions of the mixed method research as well as its types and phases were explained based on the mixed method research conducted. Consequently, the results revealed critical implications regarding the use of the mixed method especially in the field of educational technologies.
